I walk away from my desk for three minutes today...and there's voicemail from my mother-in-law when I come back. She's at the hospital with [personal profile] gridlore, and they're talking about discharging him to the rehab facility.


When the nurse practitioner mentioned it to me yesterday, I was figuring they were thinking end of this week, beginning of next...yeah, not so much.

One of my coworkers was already bringing a sandwich back for me when she gets back from lunch, so I've got to choke that down, then run home and grab a couple of changes of clothes and Doug's cane before blasting over to the hospital.

I'll update the CaringBridge page with the facility address once he's settled.

I may not have a nervous breakdown, after all - I'm not going to have time.

False alarm

[personal profile] gridlore appears to be having an allergic reaction to one of his medications, so he's staying put tonight while they determine which one it is and make the appropriate substitution(s).

I finished both the program at Cielo House and my physical therapy in the third week of June. I am incredibly grateful for my time in both programs, and grateful to all of you who helped make it happen. (I'm also very grateful I'm NOT in treatment currently, because I absolutely would not have the bandwidth.)

I actually find myself hoping [personal profile] gridlore's treatment team will recommend aquatic therapy for him, as well. (There was a peer group of recovered stroke patients who were visiting the floor today while I was there; I mentioned the center where I'd just finished my PT, and one of them brightened up and said "I did my PT there, too!")
